After spending some time and effort trying to make social media work for my blog. The fact is I’m just not publishing frequently enough to justify all of the connected platforms.
So with this weeks update I’m removing the Facebook and disqus integrations. I’m sure they work for some people, but it just hasn’t worked well for me. For the time being all post comments can go on twitter, I’ll updated the articles with a link. At some point I might try embedding twitter discussion back on the page, however with so few comments I don’t think it make sense to go through this trouble right now.
Also in the spirit of privacy, I’m turning off all analytic cookie tracking. I have no ads currently and no reason to be trying to figure out Internet users identities.
